Maybe I'll lose a few before 2013

Friday, November 23, 2012

I stepped on the scales this morning to greet a weight gain. Not surprising as I have not been sparking very brightly these past couple of days. I did eat heartily at Thanksgiving, but didn't eat much before or after the meal. Today, my kids brought home doughnuts and I ate one before thinking about it very long. I made a pretty healthy lunch though. My husband helped me set up the Wii Fit my sister let me borrow. I finally rallied enough to give it a try. My son helped set me up. I managed to burn 111 calories after 21 minutes. One thing about Wii, is that it expects you to lose weight and has you set a goal to do so. So I decided I'd try to drop 15 pounds in 2 months. If I get on it, I can make it happen.

Are you SparkFriends with Boss61? He's running a challenge to lose 8 pounds by the first of the year. I didn't jump on his bandwagon, but I read the blog and considered the action plan. It's do-able! I am going to take those action steps and see where it takes me! Glug glug glug the water. He thinks we can all lose a pound every 6 days if we concentrate. Let's concentrate!

I sent a bulk email to all the members of the 50+ team to invite them to post on our page ways they are Sparking now that the holidays have come. I hope there is more traffic of people posting their action steps. It really would feel good to lose a few before 2013!

I got my Christmas tree up with the help of the family and some neighbor children. Need to clean up and make it look nice around here.

    I like the wii fit too, but like walk it out best, not one of the exercises on that. Only have one TV and DH watching all day, so must make a plan B. I do have a small TV that a truck driver thru out as DVD did not work. I hope it has a place to hook up the wii even if it is in the kitchen. Only roomy room in the house anyway.

    Ah, a tree! I have a little sprig of one I keep up all year, since I don't have houseplants.

    I'm sure I will have a weight gain on Monday, this week has been horrible for me. I really want to lose some by the new year, I just have to get off my butt and do it! I really want to try the wii fit but we don't have money for it right now so I'm sticking with my Just Dance 2 game. Good luck!

    Right on! Time to regain focus and whittle away these bodies.
    I have a wii fit too. Maybe it is time to recharge those batteries and recharge my exercise routine.
    Spark on!

    emoticon I was lucky and didn't gain over the Thanksiving meal. Guess I am learning something about eating. LOL I have the WII but haven't been on it for awhile so guess I should get goingon it again. It would be nice to drop a few more pounds by the new year.

    I know you can lose more weight before the new year....we all should be working towards that...that is why most of us are here. Each day I am endeavering to get that much closer to my goal. I know it is going to take time and effort on my part and so I keep putting one foot in front of the other. Let's see just how much we can lose before 2013 moves on in and gives us more time to reach our goal!

    Great blog!! Yes to the Wii We can do it1 I'd love to lose down to 190 by year end. It will be tough but we can try, right? Lots of water I agree, it's key.
